Mexican Army Invades Texas!

Actually, this is pretty cool.

The Mexican Army has dispatched a convoy carrying cooks, mobile kitchens and food to San Antonio to provide meals for people displaced from the Gulf Coast by Hurricane Katrina, says an AP story in the Houston Chronicle.

The story reports that the invading force will be able to feed up to 21,000 people a day.

Wow. Awesome.

The story notes that this is the first time the Mexican Army has been on U.S. soil in 159 years. Needless to say, this is a much more welcome visit than the last time they came to San Antonio.

Three cheers to our good neighbors to the south. Nice to know that even though we don't see eye to eye on everything, they're there for us in time of need.

Cheers, this is a great thing. I've lived and worked in Mexico on and off since 1994, and their people orientation/sense of humanity is just so much different.
